Though I love to travel and visit places with great collections of art, most days I have neither the time or money. And, our priority is to spend time with our parents and family while they are around. Thus, while Rome and Naples are on our travel agenda shortly, other locations are not. We would love to visit Paris. It will wait. While those major art destinations may be for the future, there are lots of place close to our current itineraries that have valuable collections. With a new camera wanting to be broken in, while visiting my family in California recently, I missed Paris, but did visit the Rodin Sculpure Garden at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. It was a 12 minute drive on a Sunday morning. The campus has many beautify Spanish style buildings, a chapel with gorgeous frescos and mosaics, and an art museum. I will have to visit those on an future family visit.
